These flowers were outside in the gardens of the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition in Seattle. It was the end of the day, the sun was setting and people were not wanting to stop whilst I took my happy snaps.
Consequently I wasn’t particularly happy with any of my photos. That was until I transferred one to my phone. Oh the joy of photo editing apps… they breathe new life into anything!
This glass flower must have measured at least two-feet across the top. There was an entire room of these flowers on exhibit at the Chihuly Glass and Garden in Seattle. The lighting accentuating their color and beauty.
If only I could have brought one home. Or more importantly, if only I could have afforded to bring one home – oh how wonderful that would have been!
It’s that time of year again… time to dust off and drag down all the boxes of Christmas decorations that have been safely tucked away in the attic for the year.
It’s time for a little Christmas color, time for a little Christmas clutter, time to light up Christmas. Let the Christmas Countdown begin… woot, woot!
Light is the One Word Photo Challenge from Tourmaline this week.
For something different this month, rather than editing photos of my fresh flowers, I’m going to be using flowers from the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition we visited in Seattle at the beginning of the year.
Chihuly’s glass is magnificent without editing. However, in this instance I couldn’t help myself by upping both the contrast and color just a smidge!🤣
From the moment we walked into the Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle, we were repeatedly left both speechless and in awe. The sheer magnitude of some of his work was mind-boggling. The many colours and various techniques extraordinary.
The dark walls, the mirrors under the exhibits, the streaming of Italian music, all combined with this magnificent work of Dale Chihuly created the most delightful ambience. Ambience is this week’s Photo Challenge from the Daily Post.
